Just 4 months ago, singer August Alsina was laid up in a hospital ICU, suffering a brain injury after falling off a stage. Major newspapers and blogs had the New Orleans native's obituary already typed up. They were just waiting to plug in the time and date of his demise when August made a miraculous recovery. You would think he learned a lesson from his close brush with death?
From gossip tabloid TMZ.com:
August Alsina and his crew made a punk move when they kicked in a concert promoter's face -- because they waited until he was all by himself to do it.
TMZ obtained this new video of the brawl that went down backstage at a St. Louis concert ... and it shows R&B star Alsina actually did get at least one punch in on Loose Cannon Slim, the promoter. It was unclear in our first clip of the fight.
Sources close to Slim tell TMZ by the time punches started flying … security guards for the venue had already detained Slim's posse following an earlier dressing room scrap with Alsina -- so it was never a fair fight.
As for why the fight went down -- we're told double-A was offended he had to perform before the group MIGOS ... because, in his mind, he's way bigger than the "Versace" rappers.
We reached out to the August and the venue for comment, but so far … radio silence.
